Batticaloa Government Agent (GA) Mr. S. Punniyamoorthy said Wednesday that more than 65 families fleeing from the border villages of Batticaloa district have been placed in the Kirimichchai school building in the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam controlled (LTTE) region.

Residents of the resettled Tamil village in Omadiyamadu in the Koralipattu North Regional Division have sought safety in Maruthankerny, Maruthankulam, Kirimichchai, Pannichankerny villages in the LTTE controlled region.

Meanwhile, people of Punanai, Mayilanthanai, which are also Tamil villages on the border of Batticaloa district, are living in a state of fear, said sources in Batticaloa.
